Elie Harbour Beach

Elie Fife

This blue flag beach is one of three blue flag beaches in Fife., and together with Elie's Earlsferry beach, with which it is connected, provides almost a mile of clean soft sand. It's popular with families building sandcastles and eating ice cream bought from the pretty little shops that line the shore, and is also famed for watersports – the sheltered bay means it is not too windy so is good for beginners who like to try their hand at try windsurfing, canoeing and waterskiing. You can even try out the inflatable banana boats or rubber rings. It's not the most peaceful of beaches admittedly, but its location is perfect – set in a truly stunning little village – and is a great place to spend the day with the kids.
